Here are the final 8 cards , of course GAINAX also got a group on its own in the end, the last 4 cards are again a mixture of different studios, but this time they match a bit better theme-wise I think. This  completes the set of 32 cards and my work on them, which was a lot more than I first thought it would be, but it was at least as much fun, too.
For example while putting these cards together I sometimes had to search through my long ago saved video files which was quite entertaining on its own. Here seeing that my 6 year old CD with the Gunbuster files was still working fine today gave me a especial pleasing surprise, and watching the 320 x 240 pixel video with 15 pictures per second made me really happy for living those 6 years later now.

So, here are the links to the cards. I also added a set of card backsides if somebody really wants to print out these cards. As always I hope you have fun with them!

Iriya no Sora UFO no Natsu

Iriya no Sora UFO no Natsu is a little 6 episode gem among all anime series. Maybe the story about one girl’s fight against aliens for all of humankind isn’t one of the most original ones, but I really like how the aliens are kept mysterious and the fight against them is, while always important for the plot, only displayed marginally. This way the short time that is available can be used for the character and relation development with all its happy and (consequently) sad aspects. Likeable set of characters in a not too long, yet somehow too short, touching story.

And the “dance” is one of my favorite scenes in all animes.
